Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
The winter 2019 season, as stacked with goods shows as it is, is now coming to a close, it will soon be time once again to embrace a new season, and while Spring does not seem to be as loaded as Winter was, there is still plenty there worth paying attention to.
5. Attack on Titan Season Three Part Two
While I haven’t actually been keeping up with Attack on Titan recently, I am definitely still invested in the series as a whole. The end of the season two and the beginning episodes of season three that I caught have been enough to keep me wondering about the core questions that lie at the heart of the series: What is in the basement? where is Erin’s dad? I want to find these answers because the show does such a great job of keeping these questions relevant.
4. Fruits Basket
I remember being in middle school and having one of my best friends at the time tell me about this series. Since I trusted his opinion a lot I went to check it out. Of course, being a middle school boy and seeing the cute anime school girl and reading the premise, I was immediately skeptical. I am definitely glad that my skepticism was not warranted, because I ended up loving Fruits Basket.
When I heard there was going to be a remake, and that most of the original dub cast was going to be in it again, I was genuinely excited, and still am as of now.
3. Kimetsu no Yaiba
When it comes to evaluating anime, much like I would for anything, I always look to what has come before. Kimetsu no Yaiba immediately sets off Dororo alarms for me, but in a really good way. However, having a similar story does not always mean that a show is going to be boring. As long a story can bring something noticeably different with its storytelling, there is always something to look forward to. Plus, getting the Ufotable treatment always helps.
2. One Punch Man Season Two
The first season of One Punch Man is undoubtedly one of the more interesting shows to come about in the last few years. A story about a super-hero that doesn’t have fun being a hero because he beats almost everyone in one punch. Now, with the second season upon us, as well as a change in hands for the studio behind the show, there remains to be seen a lot about what the show’s second season will bring, but still, it’s pretty hype.
1. Carole and Tuesday
So, let’s see. A futuristic society in which people now inhabit mars, A story focused on two girls, one coming from an extremely low-class background and the other from a wealthy background who want to make music, and animation from BONES. Yeah, I was sold the minute I heard about this show. I honestly have no idea about where the story is going to go, because I am not familiar with the source material, but Carole and Tuesday definitely has me the most hyped.
